    Default Male Rose Scent

    Strange question... my girlfriend has Stella by Stella McCartney and I absolutely love it. For those who know of it, is there a more masculine scent that is similar?

    Sorry for the odd question.

    Not familiar with Stella, but Rosissimo by Parfums des Rosine is a nice masculine rose scent IMO.

    Without going into niche (great examples said already) Anais Anais is drier and cleaner, and suitable for men.

    If memory serves me well, Stella is basically a rose-amber composition. What you exactly like about the fragrance? Is the rose part or the ambery part? Do you want something sweet or just a butch masculine rose?

    A long time ago, I was looking for the perfect rose aswell. I find most of the popular ones are either peppered rose (rose poivre), rose with patchouli (voleur de roses, although the older version has a more tolerable amount) or rose with clove etc...

    If you want roses and are not afraid to smell like one, pick up a woman's scent. Or try Montale Attar (rose without the fussy agarwood). Iquitos is nice too, but true rose only in the midnotes.

    Lyric Man by Amouage
    Portrait of a Lady by Frederick Malle
    Black Aoud by Montale
    These are three fantastic rose scents with Black Aoud being the most masculine.

    Default Re: Male Rose Scent

    Not familiar with Stella, but my favorite rose scent: Armani Prive Rose d'Arabie

    Others are Noir de Noir, Cafe Rose, Egoiste, Voleur de Roses, Black Oud, Amouage Lyric Man, and by Kilian's Rose Oud (not very masculine though IMO).

    Probably the most masculine IMO are Lyric Man and Noir de Noir.
    Seasonal favorites:

    1. Creed - Spice & Wood
    2. Creed - Aventus
    3. Brckner - Aoud 1
    4. Armani Priv - Oud Royal
    5. by Kilian - Incense Oud
    6. Dior - Vetiver
    7. Les Nez - Turtle Vetiver Back
    8. Neela Vermeire - Trayee
    9. Amouage - Jubilation XXV
    10. Creed - Royal English Leather

    I was just going to say Dior Ambre Nuit too, Its exactly what you're looking for.

    Some of my favourites along with Ambre Nuit would be:

    Armani/Prive - Rose d'Arabie
    Creed - Windsor
    Heeley - Agarwoud Extrait
    Montale - Aoud Damascus (A little feminine but more enjoyable imo than the hugely overrated Black Aoud)

    No particular ranking except for Windsor, which is the best among many very good examples:
    Creed Windsor
    Montale Black Aoud
    Amouage Lyric Man
    MFK Lumiere Noire Pour Homme
    Le Labo Rose 31
    Tom Ford Noir de Noir

    I also like very much Malle's PoaL and Une Rose. I don't find them as clearly meant for men as the others, but they're great rose-based scents and find they work great for me.

    Rosine makes a rose just for men called Rose d'Homme. A rose with leather.

    Also try Hammom Bouquet from Penhaligon's.

    Does anyone know how if Noir de noir and black aoud are similar? They both share rose+oud notes but NdN only lasts a few hours on me and I hear black aoud lasts all day. I was thinking of purchasing black aoud if they are similar enough.

    JHL by Aramis, as long as you don't mind your rose being mixed with a large dose of carnation. The vintage juice is superior and can be acquired relatively inexpensively on eBay for about $50 for a 50 ml bottle and the current formulation retails for that same amount for 100 ml.

    1) Portrait of a Lady (EdP Frdric Malle)
    2) Giorgio for Men vintage (Giorgio Beverly Hills)
    3) Dia Man vintage edt (Amouage)
    4) Les Nombres d'Or Vetyver (Mona di Orio) - tie
    4) Lalfeorosa (O'dri) - tie

    6) Anat Fritz Original Formula and Classical (Anat Fritz)

    You can check out burberry Brit.
    I started a thread about it as I love the rose note but found it a bit too artificial over all.

    I'm not so sure if it matches the same rose notes as Stella, but "Bollywood or Bust" by Smell Bent is a very nice rose, sandalwood, and spice scent by Smell Bent (smellbent.com). It hovers somewhere between unisex and masculine and has a nice linear spicy rose from initial spray all the way to the sligthly-less-rosy and more sandalwood-y drydown.

    Not to resurrect a topic past its prime, but I bought Christian Dior's Oud Ispahan while I was in NYC this past weekend and it's a pretty darn amazing rose-oud that leans masculine. However, it has a feel that is very formal, which would limit it's "everyday" wear ability.

    Wow, I just saw Rose 31 mentioned 5 times in the last 24 hours in various places. I think that's a sign that I need to procure a sample. I *just* fell in love with Patchouli 24 (how could I not since I'm an Annick Menardo fanboy?!) from the Le Labo line so I figured I'd sample the rest eventually...gotta ramp up that process, apparently.

    I usually wear very butch scents (Bois d'Orage, Pure Oud, vintage Polo and Quorum etc.) but got a 4mL sample of Noir de Noir and can't believe how much I keep going back to it for that dark rose nose.

    Before you know it I'll be buying ladies' perfume, after that I can only assume it's a short trip to buying ladies' underwear.
